Maybe some limited info if you have an electronic pdf file from the original tax program.

 

Transfer pdf to Online version.  See the section if you used other software last year.

You can import a pdf from last years Tax Act.  However, and it's a big however, it will only import very basic info and not have auto filled any w2, other income, etc... info.  I got name, address, and occupation, that's it. This essentially made the program useless to me since that's what takes most of the time.  It's also very important when certain items are calculated on previous years totals and they are not there.  Total waste of money for me.  Wonder if it's deductible as a loss?? 😉  

PS:  I did contact support and they were unable to tell me any other way to transfer all the data and were also surprised there was no way to transfer all the info with a pdf.
